Ambience was fine, minus the bug that was flying around. It would have been nice to have some Italian music in the background rather than what was playing. The service was slow, especially considering we were the only ones there at 5:30 for dinner on a Wednesday.

The food was good enough for a return visit. We sat next to a window and one of our party had to kill 3 flies. The ambience was interesting.

Great Italian food in a unique atmosphere. I have been dining here for years and am never disappointed. Chicken prego is my go-to here. Desserts and wine are great too! Located in the Heights neighborhood of LR.

Super charming place in the heights of Little Rock. In my trips to Little Rock, I've previously been disappointed with the dining selection for a large city, but I realized I had been going to all the wrong places! A friend invited me to try out this restaurant and, from the outside, it doesn't look like much, but I was... More

The restaurant was surprisingly slow for a Saturday night. I had the sausage and peppers. It was very good. Drinks were well made. Service was excellent.

This was a disappointment, limited selections, lots of pesto and no baked ziti or similar dishes. Not chicken parm or veal. Our pasta marinara was cold, had to ask server for grated cheese. Lots of wall art and loud music.

This is a charming little place in the trendy Heights area. Based in. Cute little house and defrosted with a mishmash of old newspaper fronts, classic film stars and menus. There's even a full sized suit of armour. Kitsch for sure but it works. A really cosy effect. The service was great with no issues despite what other reviews have... More

This used to be my favorite neighborhood restaurant, but it nosedived. The food is marginal, the management is nuts (screams at servers and does it in front of diners), and it's too expensive for what you get. Skip it.

A Heights institution for Italian food as its been there like 30 years. Cool, hip, funky little place on Kavanaugh, the main drag for the Heights neighborhood. Great foccaccia, and pasta dishes. I got fettucine with bolognese, while good, wasn't near as good as my wife's or what you would get a Vesuvio. The daughter got a lemon, rosemary chicken... More

We had not been here for over a decade but had fond memories so we went back for lunch. Dog friendly (outdoor deck seating). Nice 'continental menu', not too pricey...friendly wait staff, decent proportions. We will be back.
